We stock a small range of woodworking consumables, namely biscuits and dowels from Festool and Trend which are for use with biscuit jointers and the Festool Domino.
A biscuit joiner is a woodworking tool which is used to join two pieces of wood together. It uses a small TCT circular saw blade to cut a crescent shaped hole (called the mouth) in the opposite edges of two pieces of wood or wood composite panels. An oval-shaped, highly-dried and compressed wooden biscuit (usually beech) is covered with glue or glue is applied in the slot. The biscuit is then immediately placed in the slot and the two boards are clamped together. The wet glue expands the biscuit, further improving the bond.
Festool manufactures their own, slightly different tool called the Domino, which uses a rotary blade instead. The blade cuts a domino shaped mortise which provides a surface area larger than typical biscuit slots for greater bond strength. The cutter is capable of accommodating a variety of domino sizes.
